A cookie is a string of information that is sent to your computer from each website that you visit. Cookies are harmless. Why would you want to delete them then? The reason you would want to delete cookies from your computer is that they can store information such as user name, IP address, password, email address, shopping cart items and any strings of information that can be related to your identity. Cookies that are on your computer may slow your computer down. Therefore you may want to delete cookies from your browser. Here is a very simple guide on how to delete cookies manually from your computer.

Click on "tools" in your browser. This is usually located in the upper right corner of your browser. Click on Internet options. This will appear in the drop down box and is usually at the bottom. Under the "General" tab look for "Browsing History." Under this heading you can click "Delete" to have the computer delete all cookies for you automatically however to delete the cookies manually click on the "Settings" tab Click on the "View Files" tab under the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings" box that pops up. When you do a second box will pop up with a list of cookie containing files. This may take a few seconds to load so be patient while waiting for the cookie files to load. Highlight any cookie file that you would like to delete. You can highlight more than one at a time by holding down the 'Ctrl" button on your keypad Delete the files that are highlighted by clicking on the "delete this item" located to the left in the same box. As soon as you do you will see the selected files disappear. When you are done just "X" off; this completes your task of manually deleting cookies. You might also do a disk clean up click start click on computer to open right click on your hard drive usually C: select properties in the general tab select disk clean up click ok you can view files to be deleted.
Then right click on the memturbo 4 program select run as administrator
Hope this helps.

No c drive left showing o% space left?


Don't do any mistakes just follow the instructions bellow
  • Delete Junk Files in Windows 10:
  • Search Disk Cleanup in the search box or you can find it under Start > All Apps > Windows Administrative Tools.
  • Click on Disk Cleanup to start the program. You will be asked which drive you want to clean up.
  • The default is C drive. Just make sure it is selected and click on OK.
The disk cleanup program will then start analyzing different folders and types of files that it thinks is safe to delete.
no-c-drive-left-showing-o-space-left-qxiko4mbhn3xwpbyjhiay14v-2-0.png When the analyzing is done, you will be presented with a window similar to the following - it lists what all is removable without causing problems to the operating system or installed applications.
